Guest Post: Integrating data with our journalism

Posted by on Mar 2, 2010 in Blog, CAR, data visualizations, theory | No Comments

I was recently asked to write a guest post sharing some of what I’ve learned about data from my studies, random experimentation and musings that consume my life.  This is part of Adam Westbrook’s Fresh Eyes series, where he asks people within and without journalism with non-traditional perspectives to talk about how journalists can improve their craft.  The other piece so far comes from a journalist specializing in better using music in our multimedia.

We’ve all still got a long way to go exploring this brave, new world, but the only way we’re going to move forward is by communicating and sharing knowledge and ideas.

In the post, I propose we can use data to improve three main facets of our craft: reporting, presenting and collaborating.  Please see the piece in its entirety here.
